National Bow Tie Day. 28th August, 2017

A selection of my silk bow ties ato celebrate National Bow Tie Day. Most of these are not labelled. Some of them are from Turnbull & Asser.   The bow tie originated among Croatian mercenaries during the Thirty Year War of the 17th Century. They tied a scarf  around their necks to hold the opening of their shirts together.A selection of my silk bow ties ato celebrate National Bow Tie Day. Most of these are not labelled.
